The journey really began 11 years ago when we were just 17 and 19. Amy walked in a bar, saw Phil and walked straight on over to him as if she knew him. We saw each other a few times after that – mainly Phil rescuing Amy from disastrous nights out in which she lost her friends or her money – but it all ended when Phil didn’t turn up to Amy’s 18th party (and it’s still raw!)
Fast forward to 2014, Amy was working abroad in Greece with her ex and Phil was in their hometown working as a full-time firefighter. Amy decided that said ex was not her cup of tea and looked forward to life as a single pringle. Only, at that precise moment, completely out of the blue, Phil decided to Facebook message Amy to ask ‘How’s Greek land?’ And the rest, as they say, is history! Of course, it wasn’t quite smooth sailing, and the Greece break-up involved Amy attempting to sleep outside on a hill with a yoga mat instead of in the shared 1 bedroom apartment…which then led to a wild dog tearing up the yoga mat to pieces and eyeing up Amy as the next target. But, Phil picked Amy up from Manchester Airport 2 months later and we’ve been together causing mischief ever since!
We got a mortgage in 2016, closely followed by 2 cats, an engagement in 2017 and marriage in 2018. In the last 4 years together, we have traveled to 12 countries and are aiming to travel to a whole lot more in the next 50 (fingers crossed!) Phil is all about stability and Amy is all about dreaming, so put the two together and we get the best of both worlds. We are so excited to share our crazy stories and adventures with you – buckle up, it’s gonna be a bumpy ride!
